A Tarutaru doctor and former minister of the Windurst Orastery who possesses extraordinary talent in black magic. With a superiority complex and a short fuse, she is known as the "the last woman you'd want to run into" for the irrational demands she has made to countless travelers. While shunned by most, she is considered a hero in her homeland.
Shantotto wears a robe with dark deep green and grayish cream stripes, gold linings, and two gauntlets, known as the "Tactician Magician's Cloak Set" in Final Fantasy XI.
Shantotto first appears in the Domina Wastelands. She declines to join the party straight away as she finds the new world and its Torsions a fascinating study of research. However, she does accompany them through several areas and observes as they fight monsters and close local torsions.
When Kuja and Sephiroth appear in the Wastelands, Shantotto decides to investigate their activities instead. The party later encounters her with Kuja as he opens a Torsion, causing them to question her loyalties and intentions. However, at the end of the journey through the wastelands, Shantotto's activities have allowed her to discover that Mog has deliberately concealed the truth from his "warriors of Light." She reveals that the "Light" he refers to is not simply the ability to close Torsions, but to open them as well. Although she clarifies that this power is not inherently threatening, as one must choose to use it, it is still a disturbing revelation to the others.
Having discovered this truth, Shantotto officially joins the party and begins to aid them in battle.
